         JAA TO, the leading organisation that offers training courses on International and European aviation safety rules and regulations, is being pioneer one more time by offering a new course on the recently updated regulations for De-Icing procedures. Just in time for the winter, the new open course “Aircraft De-icing/Anti-icing on the Ground” brings the updated and latest standards and requirements. It provides understanding of the basics on aircraft de-icing/anti-icing procedures and discusses the global standards now required for practice. The JAA TO-qualified instructor, Arjen Piest, is an experienced consultant in airport/airline operations with expertise in winter operations and management of Central De-icing Facilities. He will guide you into the rules to prevent aircrafts from getting into winter accidents.

         “If you work directly or even indirectly in aviation during winter times, this course is highly recommended for you. Here we teach you the new de-icing processes, also known as anti-icing, and you will greatly benefit from this course”, says Piest. It is relevant for personnel from aircraft operators, ground handling companies, maintenance organisations, and de-icing/anti-icing service providers.  Authority inspectors and pilots are also welcome. “In fact, the course is open to anyone, but a basic aviation knowledge is beneficial”, stresses the instructor.

 As in all our courses, students can take home an exclusive book developed by the instructor with JAA TO’s Course Development Unit for JAA TO students.
